How to Install Pepper Flash for Chromium on Ubuntu 13.04, 12.10 and 12.04 via PPA

Hello Linux Geeksters.

In this article I will show you how to install Pepper Flash for Google’s open-source browser, Chromium, on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin.

From the adobe site:

“For Flash Player releases after 11.2, the Flash Player browser plugin for Linux will only be available via the “Pepper” API as part of the Google Chrome browser distribution and will no longer be available as a direct download from Adobe. Adobe will continue to provide security updates to non-Pepper distributions of Flash Player 11.2 on Linux for five years from its release.”

So, Pepper Flash is the equivalent of the Adobe Flash Player, but for Chrommium.

To install Pepper Flash on Ubuntu, do this:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer

Next, open the /etc/chromium-browser/default with your favourite text editor:

$ gksudo gedit /etc/chromium-browser/default

Paste this line at the bottom of the file (after the CHROMIUM_FLAGS=”” line):

$ sudo sh /usr/lib/pepflashplugin-installer/pepflashplayer.sh
